Elastomer Styles

We offer you versatile sleeve for S-Flex coupling in three models: one-piece solid, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split design delivers options for applications with special prerequisites exactly where tiny shaft separations inhibit the set up of the one-piece strong sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter on the sleeve engage with teeth in the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are needed to connect the flanges with all the flexible sleeve which securely lock together beneath torque for smooth transmission of power
Torque is transmitted by way of shear loading from the sleeve
All three sleeve products are very elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to guard connected products from hazardous shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Kinds
These sleeves characteristic a one-piece design molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Styles, the one-piece style and design is split to provide for ease of installation and removal.
E, N Sleeve Varieties
These sleeves characteristic a two-piece design with retaining ring. The E Type is molded in EPDM rubber and the N Type is molded in Neoprene. The two-piece style and design is ideal for applications where there is difficulty in separating the shafts on the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Varieties
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece solid (H) and two-piece split
(HS) layout and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit power for high torque applications. Because of the style and the properties of the Hytrel molded sleeve, the H and HS sleeves should not be used as direct replacements for EPDM or Neoprene sleeves, and can only be used with S, TF, or SC flanges.
Sleeve Elements
EPDM ?§C Unless otherwise specified, S-Flex couplings are supplied with EPDM versatile sleeves. EPDM has good resistance to commonly used chemicals and is generally not affected by dirt or moisture. Color is black.
NEOPRENE ?§C Neoprene presents very good performance characteristics for most applications and offers a very good resistance to chemical and oil conditions. Color is black with a green dot.
HYTREL ?§C Hytrel is a polyester elastomer designed for high torque and high temperature applications and offers excellent resistance to chemical and oil conditions. Color is orange.
